Hannity: Mueller ‘Has No Business Questioning the President’

Sean Hannity continues his bootlicking ways by declaring that Special Counsel Robert Mueller “has no business questioning the president of the United States.” Of course, everyone knows that he means the current president, the one he likes; if it were a Democratic president, Robert Mueller would be of unassailable integrity and it would be an outrage if anyone suggested that the president could not be questioned.

SEAN HANNITY (HOST): President Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, the former New York City mayor, he’s telling NBC News that he has spoken with Mueller and his partisan team of witch hunters in the past 24 hours. He’s now saying that a potential presidential interview is being put in a holding pattern, which is great news. Mueller has no business ever questioning the president of the United States. There’s no such thing as collusion.

He’s right, there’s no such thing as collusion, at least legally. That is a term the media uses, it’s not a legal one and thus is not part of Mueller’s investigation except as a common description. The order appointing him as Special Counsel says that he is to investigate “any links and/or coordination bet ween the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; and (ii) any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.”

Obviously, Trump is a key witness in that regard and thus must be interviewed. The only possible position that Hannity could be taking is that even if his testimony is relevant, Mueller has no authority to question him. The courts have disagreed, of course, and they would do so again if it comes to them. And what it really means is that the president is above the law. But again, everyone knows that Hannity would be taking the exact opposite position if the president was a Democrat.
